* April and Andy visited on the weekend. Yay!

* My car indicator continues to play up. Boo!

* Sharon and I got to go see Up on Sunday. It was good and didn't stupidly pander to the 3D. Yay!

* Sharon's grandpa died Sunday night. He was an awesome old bloke. Boo!

* Jon Blum paid a visit last night. Yay!

* We have to race to Melbourne for the funeral, and race home again. Boo!

* Sharon's sister has gone into labour today, and it's my birthday, so there's a chance the bub will be born on my birthday. Double Yay!

* They almost certainly certainly won't name the child Danny, Danni, or any variation thereof. Boo!

* Seshat sent me a lovely picture of herself. Yay!

* I'm seriously behind on everything. Boo!

* Have had a couple of nice SMSes today, including one from my biological mum. Yay!

* Within the next month I'll have been in fandom for 30 years. Yay!

* If I'd murdered someone, I would have only gotten 20 years. Boo!

* I got some parcels mailed off. Yay!

* The last time I had intercourse was August 15th, 2008. Boo!

* At least I still have masturbation. Yay!

* Of course finding time for a relaxing wank when looking after a child and sharing a house with one's mother is problematic at best. Boo!

* Sharon has been talking about having another kiddie, which theoretically means more intercourse. Yay!

* The Kolchak the Nightstalker reprint I've been reading is full of typos caused by using a spellchecker and not a proofreader. Almost every page has one. Boo!

* My son totally rocks! Yay!

* I still haven't dumped the pictures from our last trip to Melbourne onto the computer. Boo!

* I like falling asleep to the soundtrack of Warriors' Gate. Yay!

* People panic buying for the first homebuyer's grant has pushed prices up. Boo!

* We have been continuing to save so we have a good sized deposit. Yay!

* I so seldom get to watch movies now. Boo!

* I think I've figured a way to bodge my indicator so it will work! Yay!

The Yays win! Woohoo!

I still haven't dumped the pictures from our last trip to Melbourne onto the computer.
I spent some hours yesterday loading the _entire memory card_ from my camera to my computer. That was everything since early July! I'd not done it because I started getting disk space errors... Paddington has cleared some media off my machine—and now that I have all the photos on, I'm getting the same errors again!

But now I have space to take more photos:-) Now to get back to putting some of them on flickr so people can actually see them!

So you saw the 3D Up and it didn't suck? or you saw regular Up without 3D?

Keep meaning to see it but the Swancon screening I had too much on that day to make.

Up3D doesn't suck. It adds to the storytelling experience (such as being high up *feels* high) and doesn't rely on gimmicks like things jumping out at you.

I'm not great with heights. I wonder if that would be a factor.

What she said.

It's directed pretty much like an ordinary film, so the 3D just gives it a feeling of depth. Plus Pixar, being the storytellers they are, have used the 3D to help tell the story. So when things are good, the colour pallet is rich and the 3D good, and when things are bad they use muted colour and scale back the 3D. It's all done with great subtlety.

I don't think the height thing would give you issues any more than most other films.

happy birthday and many hoopy returns.

Gen and I saw UP in 2D. Cheaper on a Tuesday. Loved it, wonderful film. "Now go and have your own adventure" Ghod Pixar are SO good.

Happy birthday in a slightly belated fashion! Also, why do I not have your phone number? I was sure I did, but when I went to text you something rude yesterday it wasn't in my phone. Hmph.
